Simply a bunch of Linux related comments from a user who can't stop trying new distributions.
So gtk-recordmydesktop still has that glitch where the gnome panel (or cinnamon panel) will disappear once I hit record.
Does anyone have a suggestion what I could use for a screencast?
Update: Kazam seemed to be the easiest solution alternative.
I was able to install it via terminal
# apt-get install kazam
Thanks for the feedback everyone.
Latest episode of the Linux action show made an announcement that Brian Lunduke has left.
However, Matt Hartley is taking his place which is equally awesome. Matt’s more of a techy kinda guy so he’s a good fit.
Also GNOME 4.0 and a GNOME OS wtf are they thinking at the GNOME project?
Chris and Matt go into great detail about the frustrations at the GNOME project and their insane idea to get 20% of the desktop market by 2020?!? I’m not even convinced they have 20% of the Linux market on Gnome-Shell.
With that announcement I’m switching back to XFCE I’m giving up on GNOME I love how it handles notifications but really nothing else. I tried it for several months and I’m still not convinced.
Pithos has got to be the best way to listen to Pandora. This fairly lightweight application allows Ubuntu and Debian based distributions to listen without Flash or even a web browser running.
You can do all the usual stuff, Like or Ban songs, create stations, advance to the next track. There are some extras that Pandora doesn’t have which this application adds.
View the upcoming tracks.
Skip the advertisements. (although I pay for a Pandora One account.)
Sync info with Last FM.
Select AAC or MP3 (sorry no Ogg Vorbis support)
Works with Gnome, Ubuntu Unity and XFCE notifications. (probably LXDE too.)
Plus the built in speakers on My System76 Lemur Ultra sound better than my wife’s MacbookPro.
